A Legacy

 
9780006134909: A Legacy

The Kaiser's Germany is the setting of Sybille Bedford's first and best-known novel, in which two families-one from solid, upholstered Jewish Berlin, the other from the somnolent, agrarian Catholic South -become comically, tragically, irrevocably intertwined. Each family, writes the author, stood confident of being able to go on with what was theirs, while in fact they were playthings, often victims, of the now united Germany and what was brewing therein. Did the monstrous thing that followed have its foundation in families such as these? Writing about them made me think so. Hence the title.
